Commercial Waste Water Management
When the bottom line is cost effective Commercial Level, Waste Water Management and Decentralized Treatment Options, Green Streets can help. Defined differently by different states and industry types “Commercial” can often be defined at 1000 gallons a day or greater. And of course with Green Streets, all levels of our systems focus on Sustainability, Water Conservation, Water Recycling, all with the lowest Energy consumption as possible.
Scalability on Demand
Continued Scalability to expand and even contract as needed our ability to reduce capacity is ideal for seasonal facilities. While we can add tanks to increase capacity, sites that may ramp up for a busy tourist or production season, and then slow for the off season may benefit by our unique ability to decrease capacity as needed. This saves energy, costs and maximizes only what you need need, when you need it.
Income Verticals and Unique Challenges
In this day and age it is as much about what you save, as what you make. At every turn income verticals, cost structures and operations must be viewed as opportunity waiting to happen. Our labs also look for any and every opportunity to pull “product” from your wastestream to help offset your costs. By creating additional revenue streams you are not only offsetting costs, you can reduce your waste simultaneously. Will work with you to explore your entire waste cycle to find each and every opportunity for you to reduce and earn. Our labs also love a challenge. If you have a unique effluence concern, we can design the bespoke solution for your needs. So contact us today and let some of the brightest minds in the industry take on your challenge for you.

Coupling Decentralized Treatment Options with filtration and reuse, and or infiltration reduces your effluence outflow to Municipal which will also reduce your bottom line. As some companies have grown to accept costly fines and overages being charged by local municipalities monthly totalling millions annually as “just the cost of doing business” the Return on Investment is exponential. We have done studies that have R.O.I.’s coming in under two years. What will your company gain by reducing and or eliminating those fee’s?

- A mountain retreat?
- A modern marvel?
Storm Resistant Housing & Commercial Units that are Safe, Strong, and Secure
As one of the most strongest “boxes” ever conceived, Shipping Containers traverse the world in the harshest weather known to man. Strapped to Shipping Lines the world over, these units were born to ride out a storm to carry their goods to port. Corrosion resistant by design from Rain and Salt Spray, durable beyond household construction, and close to impervious from wind blown debris, these are truly the quintessential Adult Lego, and perfect for Coastal and Storm Prone regions. We have examples of container homes weathering Category 5 Hurricanes and Cyclones.
Shipping containers can also be moved in relatively short order, so if you need to relocate, these can be picked up and trucked in land to avoid storm surge if need be. And with the right design you may even be able to pull your vehicle inside out of harms way.
A Shipping Containers Advantage…Versatility Abounds
You can have us design a single family unit, a mountain retreat, a store front for your next idea, or an entire compound, the choice is yours. With almost infinite layouts, and few site constraints space is gained on the exteriors with the additions of decks, awnings, and breeze ways. Glad in a myriad of options and most may not even recognize what the solid core of your home, studio, or office is truly made of.
- A simple porch…
- The beginnings of a compound?
Hybrid Solar Options for your Container Home or Business
Depending on the layout and size of your compound or container a solar solution is just a call away. We can place up to 12 panels on a 40ft shipping container to accommodate most household needs. And with a Hybrid Solar Battery Back Up system you can be grid tied and sell to the grid speeding up you R.O.I., or after a storm be the only one with power for miles. kick in the battery back up and assure you and your family have power and are safe during the challenges of clean up and recovery.
Take advantage of our “Quick Release Solar Programs” and you can “Stow and Go” by quickly disconnecting and placing your panels safely inside your container so they are assured a safe return for when you need them.
Viable for residential living, commercial or even industrial applications the versatility is unparalleled in modern construction today. Adding solar systems, rain water capture systems, and even waste water management systems. Allow our designers to create a sustainable solution for you.

Green Roofs for Energy Savings and Storm Water Mitigation
Green roofs equal energy savings
Green roofs are exactly what they sound like, plants on your roof. There are two basic types, Extensive and intensive, the definition is dictated by soil depth. Below four inches is Extensive and above four inches is intensive.
Vegetated roofs also lengthen the life span of a roof two to three times, an obvious cost savings. Let alone that’s less petroleum products used to make rubber roofs saving even more energy and resources. By being covered the roof no longer contributes to heat island affect.
Heat Island is where higher temperatures are recorded in urban areas as a result of darkly covered heat soaked roofs pouring heat off them all day and even into the night. The many roofs of this nature in a concentrated area actually increases air temperatures adding insult to injury during hot summer months and increasing utility costs as people combat the excessive heat. Let alone during dangerous heat emergencies when temperatures have been noted to exceed 100 degrees many elderly and young are at greater risk from heat stroke and other conditions that needlessly take lives every year. If more green spaces were added, on the ground as well as on the roof tops, the temperatures over all again could be reduced.
[gdl_gallery title=”green-roof” width=”141″ height=”190″]
Storm water mitigation
Green roofs mitigate storm water; studies have shown a four depth green roof can hold back up to 60 to 70 percent of a one inch rain which can lower your storm and sewer bills. This in turns means thousands of gallons not entering storm sewers.
Co2 / Global Warming / Habitats
Now whether you believe in Global Warming or not, it is not a debate we have time to have today. Let alone its causes, human, planetary cycle and so on. The many merits already explained should be sufficient to understand the benefits of a green roof. If you’re riding the fence on Global warming or need a trusted source let me share with you what National Geographic states.
Industrialization, deforestation, and pollution have greatly increased atmospheric concentrations of water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, all greenhouse gases that help trap heat near Earth’s surface. Humans are pouring carbon dioxide into the atmosphere much faster than plants, forest, and the ocean can absorb.
It’s the base symbiotic relationship we have with our plants and forest, we provide CO2 by our very breath, in turn they provide oxygen. By providing more plants, you inherently reduce CO2. The more plants, the better reductions of CO2 waste.
Also there are federal guidelines about quantities of CO2 corporations via factories and manufacturing are allowed to emit, it is a reasonable assumption that potential credits to use or sell are not too far off in the future. All of these reasons are worthy enough taken individually but combined it becomes apparent that the merit and impact are there in positive waves.
Green Roofs are also natural habitats for indigenous species. One of the largest Green Roofs in North America is at an auto plant in Michigan. Still growing strong years after its initial planting one of the fun aspects for staff is watching each spring for new hatchlings from the many birds’ nests that have been built upon space that once was a barren black top roof. LEED Points are also available for habitat creation.
Barrier to the radiant heat
Living walls are exactly that, a live vegetated vertical surface. On exterior placements they provide a barrier to the radiant heat of the sun in the summers and can improve any surface and area with a beautiful environment. Keeping buildings cooler in the summer can reduce energy costs and reduce exterior temperatures helping mitigate heat island affect in urban areas. They are created by using pre-vegetated blocks and or wire trellises and are extremely versatile accommodating any situation inside, or out.
Living Walls can be free standing or attached to solid walls, and can even cover larger “gap” openings such as a multistory parking garage. Living Walls can create beautiful amenities and environments indoors as well. Placed in any area they can transform any sized room into an oasis. Common areas such as hotel lobbies and corporate offices are ideal placements to not only improve the health of a building but demonstrate a corporation’s commitment to the environment and sustainable practices.
At Green Streets we strive to provide the latest products and techniques in living also known as Vegetative Walls. Our designers can provide incredible solutions to any challenge by giving you’re the best products on the market today. Call us and get started on your project today!
